Ed Sheeran serenaded a sick fan in the hospital and our hearts are melting
Fact: Ed Sheeran’s voice is magic. Whenever he sings, all kinds of emotions surface and it’s a struggle for us to maintain composure and not slump over into a weeping pile of feels. Come to think of it, that’s exactly how we reacted to seeing Sheeran serenade a sick fan in the hospital.
As reported by ABC7, the “Touch and Go” singer once again showed the world that he is literally sweeter than all of us combined by singing to a 9-year-old fan named Melody who has spent nearly her entire life hospitalized due to a debilitating Rett syndrome diagnosis. According to her mother Karina Driscoll, Melody has undergone more than 40 surgeries. The illness prevents her from walking and talking, and also causes her an immense amount of pain.
But clearly, that was the furthest thing from this precious little girl’s mind when Sheeran visited her in England’s Epsom Hospital, where he performed two of her favorite songs, “Thinking Out Loud” and “Photographs.”
Melody’s mom, who tirelessly campaigned to arrange the dream-come-true meeting for her daughter, wrote a letter expressing gratitude for Sheeran’s heartfelt gesture:
OMG, y’all. We are currently suppressing the urge to bawl like a baby but also failing miserably.
